. the future of your health care is at stake. ali velshi has been traveling on the cnn express across america talking to you about your health coverage and what you want to see in reform. ali, what are they telling you? >> reporter: and i'm here in kansas city, missouri, with the cnn express. i've been hearing a lot from people across the country. we've started in georgia, went through tennessee, kentucky, illinois, missouri, and now into kansas and then into iowa. we're finding out what people are feeling about health care. the debate, as we've seen, has been heated in town hall meetings all over the country. when we stopped in paducah, kentucky, i had a very civilized, very normal conversation with some folks about their fears and hopes for health care reform, christine. have a listen to this. >> reporter: we are hearing different things from people wherever we're going but i haven't found too many people around here who are opposed to reforming health care. >> i'm for the idea but i don't think that congress and the president have done a good job of disseminating information. i'm just hear
for "newsweek" and chris of it, the deputy chief editor of the france press america wire service. john, let's start with you. critics of the review are sort of dismissing it already out of hand saying it is merely a budget drill and something that will define major budget cuts that will come down the pipe. is that fair? because there are hints we will get strategy out of this. aren't we? >> yes. i think the criticism is that it should be a budget drill. strategy review if it's untethered to the resources. i think it's likely to be more interesting than the last couple. because it does seem to be grappling with two separate problems. on two separate time frames. and the big problem out is the way is a european competitor, china that nobody talks about that. if so what do you do? how do you prepare? out there is the biggy. in the mean time there are the future of these mete wars. like iraq, afghanistan. and the future of what we call the global commons like piracy. which requires. >> and -- >> add stuff but my sense is that the two drivers in terms of project and force numbers are the ones i
is to control the spiraling cost of health care in america. and, now, the message is, we have to change the insurance industry. >> president barack obama: this is something that sometimes we have forgotten, in the health care debate. these are ordinary americans, no different from anybody else. they are working hard and meeting responsibilities and are held hostage by health insurance companies that deny them coverage and drop their coverage and charge fees they cannot afford for care they desperately need. it is hurting too many families in business. -- and businesses and it is wrong and we'll fix it when we pass health insurance reform this year.

passionate and sometimes even violent, large swaths of white middle class america became very frightened that their normal expectations of law and order were being upended. and richard nixon kind of harvested that rage and he took political advantage of that rage and not only did he harvest it but he also exacerbated it as a political strategy. >> how? >> well, for example, he argued privately, although some of his aids said it publicly, that they wanted to achieve a strategy of positive polarization. in other words, it's good to have a political discourse that divides the country into two powerful their belief that the republicans would harvest the bigger side of the divide. so in other words, even though in much of his public rhetoric he would, you know, speak the words of unity that we expect our presidents to speak all the time, barely beneath the surface he encouraged the idea that one group of americans would believe another group of americans weren't quite american at all. one was the hippies and kids who want to tear down everything all us hard-working americans had built. >> was
a redundancy. americans for prosperity is like saying swimmers for getting wet. america was built for prosperity. this is the thing people don't remember, a lot of people don't think about. some people just flat out deny. america was built for prosperity. people will tell you that american prosperity was an accident of history and geography. we just happened to land on a continent with a lot of natural resources. we just happened to know how to use them. we just happened to build a country, a mightity arsenal that defended democracy around the world almost a century and it was all an accident. that is absolutely not true. we people. and they talked about rights. and i want to get back to this. i will get back to this. one of the things that i find to be a hair-raising experience, fig ratively speaking, of course is the idea and you hear this from the left and hear it sometimes from people on our side of the aisle, will talk about health care as a right. people have a right to health care. it sounds good. people don't want to see people denied health care. but it is a fundamentally

with the great majority of that funding devoted to iraq and afghanistan. over that period, america's reliance on contractors has grown to unprecedented proportions, to support logistics, security and reconstruction efforts related to those operations. more than 240,000 contract employees, about 80% of them foreign nationals work in iraq and afghanistan at one time to support the department of defense. additional contractor employees support the department of state and the u.s. agency for international development. contractor employees outnumber u.s. military personnel in both theaters. they have a critical mission and according to reports from the military in theater, they are doing an exceptionally good job providing security, transportation, meals, laundry and other services. the questions raised today in no way detract from the overwhelming good opinions of contractors' support for u.s. missions or obscure the fact that nearly 1,400 contract contract employees have died on duty in. the government's concerns about the ability to evaluate the costs of contractor services and provide good ste

[applause] as a child, i had polio, and i have had 52 surgeries to correct my bones. between here and the mayo clinic in phoenix arizona, i have been blessed with a good insurance, generally excellent doctors and care. however, my major concern in costs, even with good insurance, and has been high, when i have been gone out of the network. why should our doctors' treatment choice be limited by a geographic area of the state? what kind of competition is this, mr. president? . that is what is going on right now. it is just that the decisions are being made by the insurance companies. now, in fairness, we probably could not construct a system in which you could see any doctor anywhere in the world at any time, regardless of expense. that would be a hard system to set up. if you live in maine, we will fly you into california and put you up. you can see -- and i am n
14 months to get to morning in america. here's reagan at the same point obama is at now. >> we're starting down a road that i believe will lead us out of the economic swamp we've been in. it'll take time for the effective tax rate reductions to be felt in increased savings, and productivity and new jobs. it'll take time for the budget cuts to reduce deficits. the thing to do is to hold to a firm steady course. >> here's what is left over from george bush. first the bailouts last fall. the housing bubble. the spending on iraq. but critics say obama's problems are partly his own making. first, a lack of a stiff punch. and now his health care plan that some say could be too big. wike, we're heavily invested in this president, almost a billion dollar in stimulus spending. lots of action already. can he just blame it on the last guy. >> he's beginning to own. that's why we're seeing changes in his upon later -- pap later but the questions people are asking are these changes cyclical or permanent. i think they're permanent. barack obama has to deal with the fact that the economy is c
at the belief in middle america that they are experiencing the blunt of this recession. the politicians had that huge stimulous pigout. that is one thing. secondly, healthcare, they believe this reform is going to take away benefits they have. i tell you, as exhilarated by these democrats, calling them un-american, harry reid calling them evil mongers, other people calling them mobs and thugs. the backlash against the democratic party here is astonishing. middle american by 2 to 1, they agree with the protesters and not with the democratic party. >> eleanor. >> first of all, cindy said to shout down over people views is un-american. they didn't call the shouters un-american. i think the president has lost momentum here. people who have insurance are worried that they are going to lose something in this very extensive package. and the president really doesn't have a single bill that he can point to. he doesn't have a clear message and all of the bills floating around on political provide lots of inviting targets for people who want to kill healthcare and want to kill the obama presidency a
" starts right now. >>> well, august is make-or-break month for health care in america. town halls are causing public uproar, confusion running rampant. our chief business correspondent ali velshi touring the country on -- what else? the cnn express. joining us now from the missouri state fair. talk about getting the pulse of america, ali, what are you hearing? >> reporter: yeah. this is a fantastic place to do that. we've been driving from atlanta to des moines, and we passed through georgia, kentucky, tennessee, illinois, missouri heading into kansas and iowa, and we're talking to people usually in places smaller than would normally get media coverage about health care. in the beginning of the week as the debate was really heating up on tv with the town hall meetings we were trying to get a quieter discussion going. there was plenty of disagreement where we went. we ended up in one interesting place in paducah, kentucky, northwestern kentucky just on the illinois border, and had a bit of a town hall meeting. one of the women was formerly a congressional candidate. she was a democ
you can save money, because of it. the "wall street journal report" starts right now. this is america's number one financial news program, the "wall street journal report." now, maria bartiromo. >> hello, i'm bill griffeth, and maria will be along in a few minutes. >> here is a look at what is making news as we head into a new week on wall street. as anticipated, the federal reserve's open market committee kept a key interest rate at or near zero percent. the fed statement though which provides important insights into how the members of the ofmc are thinking is slightly more optimistic than it had been. and the open committee says that the economy appears to have a bottom and economic activity is leveling out. that helped to push the markets higher wednesday and the dow was up 100 points after two days' declines and the dow rose again thursday, but fell on friday. retail sales numbers released by the government were disappointing and the commerce department said they edged down by .1% in july. most analysts had been anticipating a slight increase. an astonishing number from general mo

for an entire year. if we had eliminated the income tax and told every business and every worker in america that you do not have to pay income tax anymore, it could you imagine what kind of rocket fuel that would be for our economy? instead, we're putting solar panels on libraries and things like that that are not want to work. it is amazing because i always say that this is a sad thing to say. one trillion is the new billion. when i first came to washington in the 1980's, we talked about a budget in the millions of dollars. the we have moved from the millions of dollars to the billions of dollars. i think that one of the problems we face is that the numbers are so big that people cannot relate to that. here is something you can do to relate this to your friends and kids. the other day, my friend was asking me how much one trillion dollars was. can anybody tell me about how many zeros there are in a trillion? 12. here's what i told my son. i asked who the best basketball player in the world was and he said bryan james -- hughes said lebron james. i told him that james made $40 million a yea
owner. she's against the president's plan to reform america's health care system. thank you so much for joining us. listen, i want to talk to, let's start with debbie real quick. debbie, what is your position in regards to the president's health care forum and the plans today? did you see anything about it that you liked in all of this? >> no, i did not. as a libertarian, first of all and foremost, i'm opposed to the government intervention in it to begin with. one of the things that i find particularly offensive about this is i don't have insurance, and i don't want insurance. there's no provision for me or people like me in this plan. >> you don't want health care insurance? >> mandatory insurance plan. >> you don't want health care insurance at all? >> no. i would like to have some insurance if it were affordable. in my opinion, it's insurance that has caused the problems in health care to begin with, and when we have a mandatory insurance program, this is basically a corporate welfare subsidy for insurance companies. >> yeah, you know, i hear you, debbie. i'm not exactly sure if
strong majority in america that says no. sean: we have spent a lot of time talking about what is now commonly known as the death panels, these end-of-life counselors, the house will would mandate that when they're older in life, this would be mandatory and maybe more often. the senate just confirmed that they are dropping it from the bill. they had been denying it existed and now they're saying we're going to drop it. is that a victory for the people showing up at town halls? >> yes. they were trying to say these are nuts and sarah palin isn't very smart. sean: put a victory in sarp's column. >> i -- sarah palin's column. >> i found an op ed, which was a soup esh and said this is a real problem give financial incentives to doctors where we relied upon them working out with layer lawyer and now we are going to have a doctor going to make complicated decisions. and going to give them money to do it and then have them provide key questions and available resources. and the government defines both. is the government going to say, the catholic church is an available resource when it comes

to be heard and have a right to be heard, that they're not really representative of america, in my opinion. we have to be careful here not to let those town heatings dominate the scene and influence what we do on health policy. >> it looks like the obama administration may be ready to drop a key component of the proposal. that's a public insurance option. kathleen sebelius said the option is not essential to the proposed plan. >> the president continues to believe that it's good to have consumer choice. let people choose an option in the new marketplace. he continues to be very supportive of some options for consumers. what we don't know is exactly what the senate finance committee is likely to come up with. they've been more focused on a co-op, not for profit co-op as a competitor, as opposed to a straight government-run program. and i think what's important is choice and competition. i'm convinced at the end of the day, the plan will have both of those. >> some republicans who have opposed the current proposal said they'd accept those co-ops secretary sebelius just mentions. meantime, presid
with freedom of speech is asking america to pipe down. check out today where nancy pelosi calls the protesters un-american for daring to speak up. a different context with different protesterings, these disruptions would be seen others brave. but it's not brave because for once the media is not on the protesting side. and steadying the media is mocking it those they would normally hail. but the protesters are ripe for mockery and you know the protesters can only be young and hot. the revolution series devotes one to the black panthers, therm young, black and adorable. and who can forget the wto protest flick, called battle in seattle, which made every protester hot enough to sleep with, which you know is purificationition because most resembled squeaky frohm in her prime. walgreen's, to call them, cranko old bastards waving their canes irrationally apartment a black guy, it's enough to make me want to hurl my fiberconthrough a window. and first, you're wearing a delightful black shut. >> it shows i'm dark and edgy. >> are the people showing up at the townhalls not being serious because they're

, for insurance companies so they don't get to pick and choose who in america gets coverage and who doesn't. making sure the bill doesn't add to our deficit. those are fundamental principals. i hope this element is part of it, it's something that people talk to me all about. as i have said, i have been through it personally with a mother who was very ill at the end of her life and just having that kind of conversation, and consultation, whicwe finally did, but it was weeks into her hospitalization that the conversation took place. it was very helpful, would have been a lot more helpful if it taken place weeks earlier. >> we'll move on. the president, often, last nate in colorado, says to the american people if they like their doctor, they can keep their doctor. if they like their insurance plan, they can keep their insurance plan. but according to the congressional budget office, if a public plan, a public option is introduced, at least 2 million americans will be switched by their employer from a private plan to the public plan. now, that doesn't get into the whole issue of employers dro

't fly with middle america. >> we absolutely cannot afford a quick fix on everything he wants to do. i would just assume him pick one major topic, get that taken care of, at least figure out a way to get it paid for. >> i think he's just moving too fast, trying to do everything all at once. where he should take his time. >> great conversation, a fabulous meal. the fourth street special, as long as you can calf out a little extra gym time. >> a break, and then more "sound of sunday." - hi. - blue shirts: hello! i don't know anything about computers and my daughter is going to college, so she needs one. - can you help me? - ( shouting ) - yes, you. - our line of next class laptops are perfect for college, and they start at just $650. are those good?

recognition that the system we have in america is fundamentally broken. we spend more than any country on earth. our health results look like we're a developing nation. so we have to reform the system. and i think what's going on right now is complicated, because we need to put the specific language together. but by and large, i find encouraging that congress is at the table, working, that congress is now traveling out to hear from their constituents. we knew we were in trouble in pennsylvania, john, when the woman who runs the constitutional law center got up to welcome the crowd and she was booed. so, clearly, some of this anger is not directed to health reform. it's people who are, i think, uncertain and afraid about the future and, unfortunately, there's been a lot of misinformation intentionally circulated, trying to scare people. trying to scare seniors and veterans. >> i'm sorry to interrupt. i want to get to some of those specific points and some of what you call misinformation coming up. you were the governor of kansas. democrats were saying, let's wait another month. let's se
in america, 20% of college students are uninsured. that's a pretty big chunk when you take a look at it. there are various reasons for that, but some people are uninsured because your parents' insurance plans only cover you up until a certain age. let me show you a question that we got. i think this is a really good example for a truth squad, because we are taking questions directly from you and then we're investigating them. take a look right here. this came to us from david in portland, maine. he said, i would like to know if under obama's insurance reform plan, if students like me who turn 25 and can't be on their parents' insurance plan anymore while they're full-time students will be covered. especially in this economy, you have more people going back to being full-time students so it is an increasingly important question. here's a fact we can show you about obama's health care plan. his plan would, indeed, help people who are too old for their parents' insurance. this is something that the president is pushing for. so for your specific question, here's our verdict. true. yes, inde
